With an area of more than 530 sqm the offices consist of several functional parts. The open space called the Garden is designed primarily for quiet and focused work. There are elements that create the feeling of a garden, such as a fence with creeping greenery separating the workstations from the corridor. The dominant colours here are pastel mint, muted peach and wood.

The second open space called the Jungle is suitable for everyday work and collaboration. In this open space there is a large amount of greenery in terracotta pots. The colour is a combination of green, orange, yellow-beige carpet and wood. A significant element at the entrance to the Jungle are the ropes that evoke creepers. In addition, they are complemented by lights and a swing. The Jungle is underlined by designer wicker lamps.

The Coworking Zone connects the entire space. The dominant elements here are the exposed concrete, wood and pastel mint and peach shades. The zone contains a kitchen with a large bar counter, a spacious table ideal for collaborative work, as well as softer seating in the form of armchairs. There is also a staircase podium and benches, creating great variability and flexibility, so that everyone will find a suitable place to work or just have a cup of coffee.

The reception area and meeting rooms are decorated in many corporate colours. The star here is dark blue in combination with wood and a more muted apricot colour. Even in these areas, a large amount of greenery is present.

The whole interior is largely characterized by open ceilings with visible piping and exposed concrete, which is also located on some walls. Another significant design element is the arch, which appears in various forms throughout the office. These include arches in the corridor lined with wood, suspended glass displays for products or circular acoustics and lighting fixtures. Even the stickers on the glass partitions look like circles from a distance, but in reality are small Pierre Fabre logos.
